Tawa Coconut Cookies With Whole Wheat Flour

coconut cookies
I am at parents' place these days. Since my family has started to recognise my baking talent, I wanted to bake a simple batch of cookies for them. I decided to give coconut cookies a try, that too without oven/microwave.

I made this batch of crispy, crunchy atta coconut cookies on stovetop. Surprisingly, these came out as crunchy bites that everyone loved with their hot cup of evening tea.

Their smiles made my day! Happy happy me.

Here is my simple tawa cookies recipe.











Eggless Coconut Cookies on Stovetop Ingredients
tawa coconut cookies

1 cup- whole wheat flour (atta)
1 cup- dry coconut powder
1 cup- powdered oats (grind rolled oats)
5 tbsp- sugar (you may add more or less as per your taste)
1/2 tsp- baking powder
1/2 tsp- baking soda (for crunch)
4-5 tbsp- cold milk (depending on dough)
4 tbsp- solid desi ghee (refrigerate ghee/butter for 4-5 hours to solidify it)


Coconut Cookies Without Oven Procedure

  1. Mix flour, coconut powder, and oats powder along with baking soda and baking powder.
  2. Make sure everything mixes well.
  3. Add sugar and mix again.
  4. Cut ghee into small pieces or use a grater to grate it (kadukas).
  5. Rub ghee into the flour. We need to do this very well. This step will give you crispy cookies.
  6. Add milk- 1 tbsp at a time. We need to collect the dough, not knead it.
  7. Make sure the dough is semi soft - should not be sticky or too hard.
  8. Roll the dough into logs and fold in aluminum foil. You may use parchment paper as well or butter paper.
  9. Refrigerate for an hour.
  10. Grease a steel plate or baking tray.
  11. Take out the dough from the refrigerator.
  12. Roll out into a chapati - it should be a thick chapati, but not too thick.
  13. Cut into pieces of desired shapes.
  14. Place cookies at an even distance on the greased plate.
  15. Heat a tawa. 
  16. Place a perforated stand on the tawa. Or you may use a small katori.
  17. Place the greased plate with cookies on the stand.
  18. Lower the flame and cover the cookie tray with a big vessel or plate.
  19. Bake on a low flame for 6-8 minutes.
  20. Change the cookie sides - upside down.
  21. Cover again and bake for another 6-8 minutes or until they turn little golden brown on both sides.
  22. Remove from flame when done.
  23. Place on a cooling rack for an hour.
  24. Enjoy eggless atta coconut cookies with milk or tea.
  25. To bake cookies in microwave, preheat it at 180 degrees for 10 mts.
  26. Bake cookies for 18-20 mts at 170 degrees.

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi
2 tbsp- roasted quinoa powdered (roasted quinoa adds a nutty flavor to the recipe - substitute with almond powder if you do not h…

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
